Latvijas Banka is issuing a 2 euro commemorative coin "The Rising Sun" dedicated to the history of the Coat of Arms of Latvia. At the same time, by this coin Latvia also pays tribute to Ansis Cirulis (1883–1942) artistic contribution that has been included in the Latvian Cultural Canon. The motif of a rising sun was very popular at the time of the foundation of the Latvian state. The rising sun symbolised the new country. With the help of artist Ivars Drulle, the sun motif created by artist Ansis Cirulis and emerging as one of the basic elements of the Coat of Arms of Latvia has reborn into the commemorative coin "The Rising Sun".
